The Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton is getting into Formula E, an all-electric racing series being launched in China and Europe. Formula E tracks all the same circuits as F1 but does not have a budget ceiling. The teams will compete in a season-long 10-race league, with each race ending in a title decider. The qualifying rounds will take place in cities and villages across China and Europe in some of the largest cities in the world. Sixteen cities have been chosen: Paris, Tokyo, New York, Miami, Johannesburg, London, New Delhi, Berlin, Barcelona, Shanghai, Lisbon, Rome, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Milan, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Mexico City and London. The series will be open to foreign investors, with China’s Tencent Holdings to lead F1 as a “strategic partner.” Formula E races will use lithium-ion batteries and switch in and out of play between rows of equally-sized displays that display the electrical data from the car’s on-board computers. “This is our first step into the electric car industry,” Hamilton said in a statement. “It is certainly a big step but we feel excited by the opportunity to push the boundaries and go beyond conventional technology.”
